Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

If I had to tell a funny story, it would be the one about the parrot Beru. Although he lives in a bird shop with other animals, he prefers dealing with human beings. One day, an elderly lady came to the store complaining about bad weather. She was talking with one of the employees, but Beru listened to the whole conversation and he even gave his opinion! He recommended to the lady that she always carry an umbrella and not complain so much. The employees of the store were left perplexed and they apologized to the lady for the indiscretion of this nosy parrot. How embarrassing!

Getting that for you now...
